  1. Currently I use water stones (200, 1000, 4000, 8000) (veritas guide) and then strop. My chiesels (using this method seem really sharp and I feel like it is because I micro beveled the blade. I just wasn't sure if I should do this with plane blades. I guess the micro bevel is OK on planes?
  2. I am new to hand planes. I have a #4 that I used the Rob C ruler technique on the back edge. Should you still put a micro bevel on the bevel side? Mine seems sharp but not razor sharp. It is a Woodriver brand and seems pretty good. Thanks for any help.
